Well taken care of and she looks great! Really like the wheels. You should consider the amber front reflector delete (replace with dark/smoke grey version)

I am doing differentials and transfer case today on my 4.8 today (30k mile service).

Thanks Entropy! That is the next mod I will do when I install the ATM intercooler (on the wish list). Gotta drop the bumper to delete the amber reflectors right?

Looks like fun. And thatís some serious weight savings!

Completed the diffs and T-case today. Gear oil is an awful, awful smell.

Thats a lot of carbon buildup on the swirl flaps for 113k km. Here is what my manifold looked like at 118k km.

Currently I have 206k km on original active and passive tanks. Both NOX sensors were changed

I am about to embark on a similar journey. Is anyone concerned about the tranny or transfer caseís torque limits? I wonder how much they can handle reliably?

Are you planning on doing the XHP tranny flash?

From what I remember, you use the x5d to tow a boat right? Could that be the reason why you had less CBU?

What tune and downpipe are you going with? I'm not going to lie, I am s little worried about the transmission and transfer case but that's why I serviced them.

I am on the waiting for list for DWR's TCU tune. Granted his tunes cost a little more but it is worth it. If you read the thread I linked or the posts on the Facebook bmw diesel page, everyone praises his tunes. So much so that xHP is getting jealous and upping the price for the general licence from $119 to $139 and charging DWR an extra $50 bringing the cost of his tune to $175. Shame on xHP for gouging us enthusiasts
